The Hebrew Republic & the Origins of America's Constitutional Liberty

Session 6
Advanced Course

Recent scholarship suggests the United States was founded primarily on a biblical, rather than a secular-political, concept of republicanism. Influenced by a 16th - 17th century Hebrew revival, many Americans looked to Scripture as a constitutional handbook for their new nation. This talk will review recent work on the Hebrew Republic and assess its potential for changing our understanding of religion’s role in shaping the modern world.
